Boston Gives Big


Give Back. Have Fun. This is BOSTONGIVES.

Who We Are

The genesis of BostonGives began over breakfast between three members of the city’s financial community. They were seeking a way for their firms to give back to local neighborhoods – in a fun, new way since the old way was getting stale. Charitable donors had grown weary of longwinded speeches at tiresome chicken dinners. Advocates for worthy causes simply were not reaching willing donors because charity functions had become nearly unbearable obligations. The joy of giving was lost.

In 2007, BostonGives was established with the core support of the financial and investment community with a goal of raising money and highlighting excellent and innovative organizations while incurring virtually no expenses. Since its inception, BG has grown and evolved thanks to the contributions of members of Boston’s financial, sports, marketing and entertainment industries. BostonGives belongs to anyone who wants to get involved and advance our mission to promote and support worthy organizations in Greater Boston.

How We Give Back

The majority of our fundraising comes from our annual BostonGives Big Event. Each fall we hold our signature event to celebrate the good work done by the organizations we support and to thank our generous donors. The event is not your average charity party. There are no long speeches, auctions, or sit down dinners. The unique event prides itself on making giving easy and fun.
